E-File Form 2290 For Vehicles First Used In December

You can quickly and easily E-File Form 2290 for Heavy Vehicle Use Tax at  When a new vehicle is placed in service, the Form 2290 must be filed by the last day of the following month. If a vehicle was used during any part of a month, the tax will be calculated for that month as a whole. So even if you placed your vehicle on the road December 29th, it will be taxed as though it was used the entire month. For vehicles placed on the road anytime in during the month of December, you can file your Form 2290 anytime between now and January 31, 2013.  

The tax will be prorated based on the number of months the vehicle will have been used during the tax year. So vehicles that were placed in service during the month of December will need to file HVUT using the Form 2290 by January 31, and the tax will be based on 7 months, instead of the full year.

While the deadline is the last day of the following month, you may need to file your Form 2290 before the deadline in order to get or renew your IRP plates.  Many states require proof that your 2290 was filed before they will issue or renew your plates. allows you to fill out your IRS Form 2290 online and send it to the IRS electronically! This way you can get a stamped schedule 1 in about 10 minutes. Express Truck Tax is authorized by the IRS to E-File Form 2290. The taxpayer will then receive the Schedule 1 via email or fax as soon as the IRS processes the form. The form will then be watermarked by the IRS instead of an actual physical stamp. Be sure to get this filed today to avoid possible IRS penalties.
